Tuesday Tales

A weekly peek at what we're reading.
Post your peek in the comments and share your favorite books!

Anne is reading
The Sugar Queen by Sarah Addison Allen

She stuck her head out and took a deep breath.  If she could eat the cold air, she would.  She thought cold snaps were like cookies, like gingersnaps.  In her mind they were made with white chocolate chunks and had a cool, brittle vanilla frosting.  They melted like snow in her mouth, turning creamy and warm.

Holly is reading
Miss Happiness and Miss Flower by Rumer Godden

Miss Flower was always frightened; perhaps the child who made the chip in her ear had been rough.  "I wish we had not come," said Miss Flower.

Miss Happiness sighed and said, "We were not asked."
Children are not asked either. No one had asked Nona Fell if she wanted to be sent from India to live with her uncle and aunt in England. Everyone had told her she would like it, but "I don't like it at all," said Nona.

Lily is reading
Little Brown Bear Goes to School by Elizabeth Upham

Cousin Tillie Bear had made a pan of nice hot chocolate to drink, and she told Little Brown Bear that he could get out the hand painted chocolate cups.

The chocolate set was beautiful.  Each of the cups had a soft pink background with a red and gray flower design painted on the side.

Little Brown Bear took three cups out of the china cupboard and carefully set them on the table.

"One, two, three,
One, two, three;
For Grandmother, Cousin Tillie,
And me!"
